Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge: Bouquet

Here we are with anothe Club Scrap Artist Team challenge.
This month all of us received a sheet of unmounted rubber stamps
to play with:
The 2016 Reatreat stamps called Bouquet
and you find them here.

The start of the blog hop is on the
or did you come here from Pam's Blog
and enjoyed seeing her projects. 
A few weeks ago I played in a color challenge. As I am not
very good in coloring, I came across this fun and easy technique
that I want to share with you. Works great with these beautiful
flower stamps. One can have never enough flower cards, for
they are great for any occasion.

1. Start with coloring your panel with a color ink.
I used Club Scrap lagoon.

2. Pick a stamp and start covering your panel fully
with this stamp. Do not stamp full inkted, but stamp
it off on a piece of paper befor you stamp on the panel.

3. A second time use the stamp fully inkted on the panel.
Cover all of the panel.

4. Dry the panel after stamping, maybe use a emboss budy.
Now you stamp the flower with versamark and emboss
the flower with white embossing powder. Stamp as
many flowers as you want. I stamped a horizontal line of flowers.
5. Now the flower is colored with a blue aquarel pencil.
Color heavy around the lines and next take a waterbrush
to fully color the flower.

6.  Stamp the flower on a piece of post-it and
cut it out with scissors.

7. Cover the embossed and colored flower with the cut
out post-it note. 

8. Take a flower stamp with a stem and with black
ink you stamp this over the flower.

9. After stamping it looks like this. Remove
the post-it note and put it on the next flower and repeat.

10. And this is how it looks after all the flowers have
a stem. Now it is time to finish of the card.

Here a version in red (fuchsia ink) and red pencil.

And a version in sandstone ink and yellow pencil.

For more ideas with these wonderful Bouquet stamps
and see what wonderful inspiration she has for you.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!
